Go with BIGGER drill bit. Total cylinder length maybe 1 1/2 inch. Only 1 inch should get you into the small parts. The bar or key you look for will be facing DOWN, it's in the BOTTOM of the lock cylinder. Going bigger allows you to chew up more real estate to get through the small parts to see bar.
